MYCAP makes headway in national search for new director

Published: Sun, January 16, 2011 @ 1:24 p.m.




The Mahoning-Youngstown Community Action Partnership could have a new chief executive in place by mid-February.

A national search produced 44 applications, the number of which will be narrowed to about 10 via electronic interviews.

A short list of about five will be interviewed in person early in February, said John Wilson, MYCAP interim director.

Wilson is president of Progress Resources Inc., which the MYCAP board hired in November for three months for $230,000. The dual task of the team from Progress Resources, a nonprofit training and technical-assistance organization that provides consulting services to community-action agencies nationwide, was to overhaul MYCAP’s policies and procedures and to direct a search for a new executive director.

MYCAP administers 11 programs in Mahoning County to help poor and disadvantaged people. It’s budget in 2008 was about $15.6 million, virtually all of which came from state and federal grants.

MYCAP of Mahoning County is a nightmare for the people who need its help the most. It needs a complete overhaul of its currently run and managed system and should have a strong technically monitored and managed presence from Columbus. They did work on a relatives home for which they should have been arrested. If you do something that you know can potentially harm another person or could lead to the death of others, you should be held liable. Apparently this doesn't apply to MYCAP. Becareful if they come out to do insulation work for example for you or someone you care about, Do you know how they seal for "Air Leaks" around windows" Well, they didn't insulate or repair or fix the old windows etc, instead they used silicon sealant and actually sealed CLOSED all of the windows and sashes on the 2nd floor in this home, leaving the homeowner unaware the home was a waiting firetrap! Another of my favorites was stuffing a fireplace and chimney with insulation,( unknown to the homeowner) instead of repairing a damper they broke during an air test.The list at this house goes on and on and this is just ONE house in the Valley that I personally have seen their shortcuts, shoddy workmanship that jeopardizes the lives of homeowners, lack of overall community and housing ethics and respect for the very individuals they are suppose to be helping. From what I've seen and fought to have corrected and made safe in this family member's home, I can only conclude that someone else must be really benefitting because its not the people of Mahoning County. Wake up everyone, these are your family members who are being taken advantage of by this poorly run and managed mess. Wake up Ohio taxpayers, your tax dollars are being wasted a mile a minute!
